Borja Perez

Borja graduated with an MSc in telecommunications at the University of the Basque Country and completed an MBA at Eseune Business School. For the past 20 years he has been working in the remote control industry for off-highway applications, developing products and managing the growing engineering team. In his current role, he is also in charge of technology development for future remote control systems.


Increased operator safety with ultra-wideband remote controls

Remote control (RCT) manufacturers are constantly innovating within the fields of ergonomics, operator safety and security. Both the machine and the RCT rely on features that can establish and identify a safe working area. With operator experience at the core of this initiative, this demand focuses on products that are designed for efficiency, comfort and postural fatigue reduction, and overall safety. One solution is the development of a one-hand-operated remote control device that uses ultra-wideband radio technology, enabling highly accurate distance measurement and allowing the operator to control the machine remotely. Utilizing a very low energy level for short-range and high-bandwidth communications, it ensures fast and stable transmission of data. In addition, the RCT requires security encryption to protect from hacking, and other features that allow the radio remote to deny or enable access to operator cards.
